Large Grouping of Civil War Relics Including Several Plates from Amelia, Co., Va.
Large Grouping of Civil War Relics Including Several Plates from Amelia, Co., Va. – We have recently obtained a large group of Civil War artifacts excavated by an early relic hunter, during the 1960s and 1970s, in Amelia County, Va. The vast majority of the artifacts were dug along the April of 1865, Retreat Route; most of the relics were dug either in Jetersville, Deatonville, Amelia Courthouse and Sayler’s Creek, all areas that saw the passing and engagements of Union and Confederate troops. We have several artillery shells, some already posted on our site, as well as several U.S. box plates, belt plates and Eagle breastplates. In addition, we have a large selection of whole Spencer cartridges, as well as many spent Spencer and Henry cartridge casings. Finally, we have a modest array of buttons, as well as insignia, musket tools, lock plates and more; we will be posting some of the latter on our site soon.
*Please contact us for pricing on any of the plates posted here. They are all in reasonable dug condition, although some retain hooks while others do not, so pricing varies.
